“August: Osage County” ERICKSON DELA CRUZ II

“August: Osage County,” the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play by actor-writer Tracy Letts, is set in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, a speck of a town of less than 4,000 people somewhere in the Great American Plains. The state is just north of Texas, so it’s perfectly acceptable to assume that they must speak in a sort of Southern accent there.

Social media, for good or ill

By

Supertyphoon “Yolanda” showed the best and the worst of social media. In the immediate aftermath, at least, there was none of the irreverent humor that Filipinos are known for, we who make fun of anything and anyone, even and especially our own misfortune. The enormity of the tragedy was such that not even the worst kibitzers on social media had the guts to post any wisecrack.

The year’s performances to remember–so far

Jamie Wilson in Viva Atlantis Theatricals’ “The Full Monty,” directed by Chari Arespacochaga

COUNT THEM—22 productions in just the first five months of the year, from the small two-character drama (“Red”) to the all-stops-out musical extravaganza (“Ibalong,” “Katy”). Local theater is at its most prolific and exciting in years; and so, before the last days of summer ring the curtain down on the old season to usher in the new by June—and with memory the only antidote to the ephemeral nature of theater—we thought we’d look back and salute the performances that lit up the stage and occasioned cheers in the previous months.

Pinky Amador is a powerful Piaf

By
AMADOR fully embodies Piaf from her naïve, crude beginnings to her brash, wild peak, and then her fragile, withering last days

In Atlantis Productions’ “Piaf,” audiences are greeted by a room made of wide, drab, wooden panels and crumbling shutters that reach the rafters, a visual metaphor for the vast, high-reaching yet damaged life of the play’s titular French chanteuse.

How Pinky Amador became Piaf

By
PINKY Amador as Edith Piaf: “I actually got to a really dark place that I never thought even existed in me…I almost had anxiety attacks. Because it mattered so much to me. There’s a lot to prove.”

It is late afternoon in a dance studio in Makati, where the cast of Atlantis Productions’ “Piaf” is winding up rehearsals for the day. The play, which premiered Friday night at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium of RCBC Plaza, has occupied the mind of its lead star, Pinky Amador, for a good number of years.
